Carle at The Fields is a new 200-acre development located in southwest Champaign that was built to accommodate the area’s growing population and consolidate various Carle and Health Alliance administrative and support functions. Eckenhoff Saunders was the design architect and architect of record for three of the campus buildings. The firm also provided planning, programming, and interior design services. The projects include:

1) A 47,000 SF ambulatory surgical center with 12 state-of-the-art operating suites, designed to serve orthopedic and eye cases but flexible to serve most needs. The ORs are serviced from a central sterile core, including processing, and 51 pre-/post-recovery bays.

2) A 70,000 SF medical office building owned by Carle and leased to the Christie Clinic. The building houses clinical services devoted to GI, audiology, physical therapy, eye care, lab, ENT, orthopedics, radiology (MRI and PET scan rooms), urology, and general surgery. It also includes significant space for conference facilities.

3) An 80,000 SF medical specialty clinic building dedicated to Carle’s eye care, audiology, ENT, oral and maxillofacial care, and plastics programs. Attention was given to electronic registration and check-out to improve the visitor experience.
